personal preference. But it depends, i would recommend the getting springs AND shocks and struts, because ride quality will suffer with aftermarket springs, and the springs could wear out your shocks/struts quicker if not changed. As far as the midpipe goes, are you willing to change the manifolds too? want it louder?

If you are going to lower it, might as well do the shocks and struts at the same time. I personally went with the mid-pipe first and then lowered it. But if I had to do it all over again I would probably lower it first haha.

I think lowering it would be better. You already have an exhaust so lower it!!

Funny I asked a buddy of mine the same question a year ago and he said lower it. He also said if you could change ths struts/shocks and upgrade the sway bars do that first, before any engine and exhaust mods, A car isn't worth a damn if you cannot keep it on the road. I listened to him and I don't regret taking his advice. So in my humble opinion I agree with the rest of our mustang bretheren.....Lower the car.
